asknet demonstrates usual transparency in new Basic Board segment of Deutsche
Börse Frankfurt

Karlsruhe, February 28, 2017 -Deutsche Börse Frankfurt has reorganized the
open market quality segments effective as of March 1, 2017. The Entry
Standard, previously home to asknet shares, is to be replaced by the Scale
segment and the Basic Board. With the Scale segment specially created for
stock corporations with higher market capitalization than currently offered by
asknet, asknet AG shares will be traded on the Basic Board from March 1, 2017.
The company has always exceeded the requirements in the segment in which its
shares are traded. asknet will also voluntary exceed the requirements for the
new Basic Board quality segment on the Deutsche Börse Frankfurt open market
and continue to publish figures for the first three and nine months of the
year. asknet has been working with a research specialist for a number of years
already with the aim of increasing transparency with shareholders and has been
publishing reports on directors' dealings on a voluntarily basis for some ten
years. As a result, the new requirements which entered into force as part of
the Market Abuse Regulation on July 3, 2016 do not represent any kind of
challenge for the company.

asknet AG will continue to pursue an active investor relations strategy and
participate in investor and shareholder events moving forward. Tobias
Kaulfuss, CEO of asknet AG, has already presented the company to the Frankfurt
financial market at the DVFA spring conference and the equity forum this year.
Regular roadshows round off asknet's investor relations activities. The
company will once again present itself to a broad range of investors in 2017
with the Deutsche Börse Frankfurt equity forum in the fall.
